Baritone Roberto Borgatti Sings Opera Under the Stars
We'd love to hear to see you there!
Baritone Roberto Borgatti’s ascent on the opera scene was anything but traditional. As a professional golf instructor, he is heard singing “Verdi “ on the greens, conducting clinics to professional organizations and teaching professionals around the world.
With a “voice that thrills” and a “captivating stage presence,” Borgatti has proven a favorite for NYC opera audiences.
Performing with Borgatti will be pianist Brent Douglas who has played piano and celeste in The Florida Orchestra since 2013. Douglas was named 2016 Classical Musician of the Year by Creative Loafing Magazine of Tampa Bay.
In 2014 Borgatti sang his first lead role in La Traviata (Germont) in New York City to rave reviews —
“Impressive …a role he was born to sing… finely attuned to the Italian language and phrasing…substantial voice, great technique and dramatic chops to match.” www.Opera.com
Displaying his versatility the following year as the extroverted, flashy Escamillo in Carmen with Opera New York, high praise critic Marc Miller—
“Baritone Roberto Borgatti’s “Toreador Song” is really spectacular, with Borgatti simultaneously vocally honoring, while sending up Escamillo’s swagger.”
Borgatti credits his success to the influence of his great uncle, the late baritone Giuseppe Valdengo. Roberto studies voice with former Metropolitan Opera baritones Jason Stearns, Mark Oswald and David Pershall.
